Twisted Metal Season 2 is on the way.
During The Game Awards, Twisted Metal star Anthony Mackie announced that a second season for the hit Peacock series is in development. This comes after Peacock announced that the series had done record viewership for an exclusive comedy series earlier this year.
“The half-hour-long series follows a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland,” reads the synopsis. “With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.”
